Rare Six-Neck Guitar Up For Auction, And I Want It!

The rare guitar "that should have never been built" will be going up for auction on Gardiner Houlgate. The description is drool-worthy:

Hutchins "The Beast" six-neck electric guitar, comprising a twelve string guitar, a six string guitar with tremolo, a five string bass, a four string bass, a seven string guitar with tremolo and a six string hardtail guitar; Finish: metallic red, some minor marks; Fingerboards: rosewood; Frets: good; Electrics: working; Hardware: good; Case: original gig bag; Weight: 16.97kg; Overall condition: good *In the words of creator Gary Hutchins this is 'The guitar that should never have been made'. Inspired by Cheap Tricks Rick Nielsen using a five-neck guitar, Gary Hutchins thought he would go one further. "The Beast was born, creating a buzz and has been seen on stages all over the world with Bill Bailey, Spinal Tap and Prince Charles, with appearances at the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Museum of Comedy in London. This example is one of only a few made

Bidding will start at £1500 on March 10th. You can get more info here. All the guitars up for auction on March 10 can be seen right here.
